Forum: forums Subject: Adult Content Allowed?

I was wanting to know if you guys allow us to upload legal adult content to the server, such as porn.

Thanks.

we essentially do not allow adult pornographic content on our servers.

otherwise, we are very free-speech friendly!

I see. Could this be stated in the terms of use, and/or at the very least in the FAQ? It took me a while to find this information.

Could you also share why this decision was made? Is it liability (filtering out illegal content, copyrighted content, etc), storage (there's just so much the floodgates need to stay closed), or value (PD and free culture porn being less culturally valuable than the random other videos that are hosted here).

I generally don't like excluding something as broad as porn which doesn't have a strict definition. Is anything with nudity porn? What if there is a very valuable sex education film that shows sexual intercourse? That may be a very valuable resource that could save a life if it reached the right person.
